I am afraid there is a cottage industry of fakers in China admirably helped by Ebay who are not bothered about fakes being pedalled on their site (one only has to see the British medals to see the fraudulent abominations offered on the site). The Chinese fakers have already destroyed the native coin market

 I am waiting for their present pathetic efforts in medals to get really good and kill the market in Chine ODM. Pity more extreme methods of mediaeval tortures couldn't be imposed  on the fakers by the Chinese regime.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath.

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
